This year 60 young people have been going through an amazing journey as part of a pilot programme funded by Lambeth Council. Starting in year 9, We Rise have been working with students at The Elmgreen and Norwood schools who can gain most benefit from exposure to inspiration and insight about future careers.

Each young person has a personal coach and a range of workshops to help them develop their personal skills, confidence and aspirations. They have been going out to explore locations of workplaces across London, visited offices in different sectors, had one to one conversations with a range of professionals and identified sectors to explore in more depth with tailored visits.

They have also been working on telling their personal story of who they are and what they want from life.

The programme culminates, in the middle of year 10, with this Graduation and Showcase Event at Lambeth Town Hall.

This is the beginning of their journey and their opportunity to connect with their community. They will be sharing their stories and showing you what they can do.

Our young people need to access work experience and opportunites so if you can offer any support, please come and say hello.
